I know...way behind the curve, but I'm getting there.

I started a new web site in Visual Studio 2005 and it seems as though I have a setting wrong. I am simply trying to create a connection to a SQL Database. I am using the example here:

http://www.programmersheaven.com/2/F...-SQL-Server-VB

However, when I try to Imports System.Data.SqlClient, my Intellisense does not even give me the option of .Data, much less .SqlClient. I can type it, and I don't get an error, but in VS 2003 Intellisense would always give me those choices. I am assuming this is b/c I can't import that class, but even in my button code when I write Dim dr As New....SqlDataReader() is not an option.

Lastly, in Design Mode when I double-click a control, shouldn't it take me to the code-behind routine for that control? It doesn't....so, what am I doing wrong?

I won't even get into my attempt to use Microsoft Application Blocks 2.0....
